At the Site
Around the site there are plenty of sites of natural and historic interest, such as mountain fauna and flora, waterfalls and historic features.
Flora & Fauna
There is also plenty of flora and fauna to view around the site and the woodlands are within 1 minute of the site, by foot. Further up the hill, you may see more wild mammals, such as otter, or birds of prey.
There are also archaeological features on the hills, with remnants of old shiellings (summer shepherd houses).
A short walk in the woods will take you to some fantastic waterfalls. They are immediately next to the site with picnic tables. The waterfalls are protected by safety rails.
We are based on a working farm. You should be able to see our flock of hill sheep, either grazing around the farm or on the hill, and being handled in the yard. The animals are kept on the hills for most of the year - this is the traditional way of husbandry in these parts of Scotland. We mainly have Scottish Blackface ewes, which are the traditional breed, but we also have some crossbred and Llyenn ewes.
